From the Test Kitchen

For these bowls, we’re mixing fluffy white rice with creamy black beans and bold Mexican spices like ancho chile powder and paprika, then topping it off with Beyond Beef® cooked with spicy guajillo chile sauce. Fresh tomato salsa and creamy guacamole provide a delightful cooling contrast.

tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the vegetables
1 Prepare & roast the vegetables

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges, keeping the layers intact. Transfer the carrot pieces and onion wedges to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. Drain and rinse the beans. In a medium pot, combine the rice, drained beans, remaining spice blend, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water; stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

In a medium bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, the juice of 1 lime half, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.
